I try not to look 
Regardless of intent
My eyes stray, hoping,
To catch a smile
 
Playing with her hair
Oblivious to me
In her own world
She catches me
 
I see her smile.
Noticing the light,
Playing across her face
Knowing she knows.
 
I smile back and turn
Telling myself to quit
But unable too
Unwilling to miss a smile
 
She catches me again
Looking, watching,
Questioning,
What lies behind her eyes?
 
I see her smile
Knowing something I don’t
Maybe just waiting, watching,
Smiling at catching me.
